Question 36 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)

If 50 bales of 5 µg/inch, 20 bales of 3.5 µg/inch and 40 bales of 3.0 µg/inch cotton fibres are mixed, the resultant µg/inch of the mixed cotton is __3.70 : 3.85__.

Given in the question
Fineness of 50 bales=5\mug/inch

Fineness of 20 bales=3.5\mug/inch

Fineness of 40 bales=3.0\mug/inch

Let us assume bales as \mugrams
By unitary rule:
1) 50 bales of 5\mug/inch

1 inch length contained=5\mug weight

i.e , 5\mug weight have=1 inch length

1\mug weight have=1/5


50\mug weight have=50/5 inch length
L1 =10 inch

2) 20 bales of 3.5\mug/inch


1 inch length contained=3.5\mug weight

i.e , 3.5\mug weight have=1 inch length

1\mug weight have=1/3.5


20\mug weight have=20/3.5 inch length
L2 =5.71 inch

3) 40 bales of 3.0\mug/inch


1 inch length contained=3.0\mug weight

i.e , 3.0\mug weight have=1 inch length

1\mug weight have=1/3.0


40\mug weight have=40/3.0 inch length
L2 =13.33 inch

Total weight(W)=W1+W2+W3

Total weight(W)=110\mu

Total length(L)=L1+L2+L3


Total length(L)=29.04 inch

Hence, 29.04 inch length have=110\mug

1 inch length have=110/29.04


Resultant \mug/inch=3.79 (Answer)
